Smart Practices Database

The IFRC created the Smart Practices Database, and an accompanying report, to share knowledge, skills and best practices in aiding and protecting people who are migrating or displaced. The goal is to increase the knowledge, resources and capacities of Red Cross and Red Crescent staff and volunteers, and other humanitarian actors, to improve their support for vulnerable people on the move and other migrants and displaced people. It is a living database, that enables visitors to submit their own smart practices and share experiences and resources.
